This was our 2nd cruise; and both were with Carnival. This was our 10 year anniversary and decided to get away. We loved every second of it. I was nice and relaxing. They had so much to do everyday: dancing, eating, bingo, eating again, and music all around the ship. It's called THE FUN SHIP for a reason. but instead of having fun, if you want to relax, there are so many places on the ship to have piece and quiet.

The breakfast starts at 7AM until 10:30AM; and then lunch runs from 11:15AM to 4PM, while dinner runs from 5PM to 11PM. That's in the RED ROOM (casual dining). The buffett includes everything that the formal dining has plus more. We went to the formal dining the first night and really didn't like it - but that was us. We liked that we didn't have to get all dressed up and sit down at 6PM or worry about being late. Plus, we could eat whatever we want. One big drawback was that alcohol was very expensive. For example, Corona was $6.50, mixed drinks $7.00; and that soda card was $6-7/day. For the 7 day cruise it was $42.00, not bad but you must buy it the first 2 days on ship. The soda card came in very handy

Stateroom was top of the line; and in an upper room (since we were a return visitor we got an upgrade) always clean, smelt great, had a bed, a TV, and a bathroom (stand up shower) and a safe. We didn't really need anything more.

On-board activities were fun but could have been more. They had the hairy chest contest and guys dressed as women and bingo ($20 a card). It was not bad, but I'm sure they made a lot of money from it. And the comedy shows were good, but late.
